2017 PORTRAIT BAROSSA CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Our Portrait wines are the perfect introduction to the renowned Barossa varietals and their classic styles. The wines are crafted to represent our ‘Portrait’ of what a Barossa Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Riesling or Grenache Rosé should taste like.
Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards scattered
The Spring of 2016 was one for the record books, with bountiful rain setting up the growing season perfectly. Above average crops and healthy canopies allowed grapes to hang on the vines for longer, permitting longer ripening for intense colour and flavour development.
Winemaking & Maturation
Fermented on skins for a period of seven days before maturation in 10% new and older French and American oak hogsheads for 15 months prior to bottling.
Colour Deep ruby.
Aroma A bouquet of violets, blackcurrant and subtle charry, mocha flavoured oak in the background.
Displays classic Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon characters,
This Cabernet Sauvignon is beautifully structured and well noted for its longevity. These wines keep the promise Peter Lehmann made to the growers across the region to always make wines that showcase the true character of the Barossa.
Enjoy now, or rewards handsomely with five to ten years of cellar time – until 2026.
Enjoy With Pair with rich game dishes such as pan seared and roasted duck leg, and enjoyed best over casual dinners with friends.
